Wile and Woolly Jewelry

Now, I'm not advocating using ivory for jewelry here. Not only is that illegal in most countries, well, it's just down right wrong. But what about prehistoric ivory, the kind from a woolly mammoth? If nothing else, this is an interesting use of natural materials.

From CBS4 Denver: Anchorage, Alaska (AP) In Anchorage's downtown ivory shops, alongside whale baleen baskets and walrus tusk statuettes, are souvenirs made from the fossils of shaggy Ice Age beasts that died on the tundra thousands of years ago.

The bones, teeth and giant curving tusks of woolly mammoths can be found in abundance in Alaska, and the fossils of the elephant-like beasts are routinely if not always legally turned into jewelry and other curios.
